AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

It was wonderful to hear how excited Ira was when he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior! I enjoyed listening to his stories and questions about Heaven and our Father in Heaven. My prayer for Eiko is peace and comfort which surpasses all understanding; wisdom to make the right choices for your life and encouragement to live life without Ira. What's comforting is Ira is in HEAVEN!
Love, Trish Griffith

I will never forget his Baby Blue Mustang. I was hoping to see you soon. I just moved to Dallas.
